Full Description

The latest advances in knowledge of growth biology are now available in a single, seminal volume. Biology of Growth of Domestic Animals critically examines the fundamental process of growth both from a systems viewpoint (mathematical aspects, modeling, cell and molecular biology, hormones, growth factors, the extra-cellular matrix) and at the organ level (muscle, adipose, mammary gland and bone). The text considers the interface of growth with other disciplines including nutrition, genetics, and environment management, as well as specific aspects of growth in livestock and companion animal species. Man's relationship with animals is reviewed as an introduction to the importance of domestic animals which have been critical to human development providing nutrition, income, transportation, locomotive power, companionship and entertainment.
